has released his highly-anticipated PS1 emulator PSPSOne DEMO Test Release
. He states that it is hard-coded to run the pdx-dlcm.psx, and has included other demos as well. Currently, it only runs at about .5 fps @ 222mhz. To quote: "The emulation is really slow at this point, I'm still working on getting my recompiler to function properly (or at all). Once the recompiler is working, I expect to see a huge jump in performance. After that, I'll replace the GPU software rendering with the GE calls to hardware blit 2d triangles."
To begin, xwd
is working on PSPx
, a PSP Emulator for the PC. He comments on his progress thus far as follows: "Puzzle Bobble is completely playable at around 5-8 FPS.. Mercury almost gets in-game.. and Ridge Racers stops. Basically it's just an allegrex/fpu/vfpu interpreter, with native mode library implementations.. HLE like.. Some audio functions have been done, and quite a lot of 3D stuff done.. All rendering is currently done in software. I really think it's enough for now.. Currently I'm cleaning up the code abit, and trying to fix all those remaining bugs.. Not really sure if I should give it out, because it runs some commercial games in addition to most of the homebrew stuff around."
Next up, PacManFan
has been working on getting the open-source PCSX PlayStation emulator to run on the PSP. He still isn't sure of the title (perhaps PSPSOne or PSPcsx), but what he can confirm is as follows: "1)
it runs at about 1fps in the emulator, 2)
No, I haven't put it on my PSP yet, I'm still at work, 3)
No, I haven't tried Game XYZ on it yet, 4)
No, there is No sound, No controls, No way to specify ROMs yet, and 5)
After a little cleanup, I'll make the code available."
Finally, earlier today the world-renown
ceners, now PSP sceners too! keke) have released several "NO UMD WIFI WORKING" EBOOT.PBP launchers with BOOT.BIN file replacements such as the one detailed in this NFO File
. Needless to say we can't host them here as they contain (c) BOOT.BIN files, however, we may work on a PPF Patch File Collection of them for the site in coming days so stay tuned, and be sure to send all felicitations to the great MUPSY
